This is my take on Dave Canterbury’s 10 C’s of survival this should be the basic minimal kit every bushcrafter, survivalist, hiker, backpacker etc should take with them into the wilderness. Don’t take chances with your life and safety. Have fun and live comfortably out there.
My 10 c’s of basic gear
Cutting tool- Good solid knife (fixed or locking blade)
Coverage- Tarp 10×10
Combustion- Put together a kit with multiple ways of making fire
Cordage- 50-100ft 550 paracord
Container- Personal preferance but a good solid container
Candling- Good higher loomin head flashlight keeps your hands free
Course- Compass, Map and Gps never just a gps
Communication- Cell phone, Satillite communicator (inreach device, spot device)
Care- First aid kit taylered for you and not just an off the shelf kit
Confidence- In your gear and knowing how to use it.
Know more, rely on less

You are miles from civilization with no cell phone signal you only have a knife and a source ignition with you.
Remember always tell someone where you are going and give them your route plan with the date and time you are due back. Even when going for a hike, carry the minimal gear with you for emergencies I will do a video on this soon.
I Hope this was educational for you

These are the main books I have used over the years to help me learn skills and techniques. There are many ways to skin cat so I like to see how different people do things then work out my own. When learning wild edibles find instructors and cross reference with different books and apps. Only eat something if you are 100% sure about what it is.
I hope this is helpful to you, if anyone has anything to add or any questions please don’t hesitate to write them in the comments.

Thanks for watching like share and subscribe to both my youtube and my blog I want to get my knowledge out to more people.
There are loads of different configurations that you can do with different tarp sizes. Bungees are a great way to put up a shelter quickly and will enable you to take it down quickly if the need arises. This leaves you more time for the other activities around camp.
We ve all seen a simple lean too shelter, so here are the pictures of both wedge shelters.
You can use sticks for the entrance also but with one bungee it’s easier than that. If you don’t have a single tree in front you can put a tie off line across two trees and hook to that. Which is what I did here.
Using a the para cord knot, tarp clips or something along those lines, that won’t damage your tarp, you can add tie off points. These will enable you to add head room to your shelter.
I will show a few more variations in the future but these are a good couple to start with.
I Hope this is helpful

If I find a piece of gear that is good quality and does what I want it to do I like to share it. I have had this axe going on 4 years now and its still going strong. I just saw this video featuring the good old estwing and thought that this gives great testament to the quality you get. Kudos to the slow mo guys for this video.
I can’t say much more really, it splits bullets without compromising the cutting edge in a big way.
You can find more info on the axe here

I wanted to experiment with making my own waterproof light weight and highly pack able fire lighting strips so here is the result.
Here is how to spilt larger wood without a solid knife. This knife is a swiss army knife climber which I carry everyday.

After being on social media now for a few months I figured It was time to show you why you should be subscribed to my channel and my blog.
No food, no shelter, no sleeping bag, no cordage, no containers, just the clothes on my back the knowledge in my head and my shovel to last 4 days in the woods alone,
Real survival I think every perspective teacher of this subject should experience.
I intend on leading by example and will never class myself as an expert because there is always something new to learn.
